    No, but "black culture" has certainly taken a nose dive in the last couple of decades.

    The fortunes of the black community as a whole have declined because of it.

    Yes, very much so and if you move to Asian communities, not only do they tend to support those who move up, they expect it. All of these groups have different cultural norms and among those groups, only the ghetto black community is actively eating their own.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's certainly not a positive thing.

    I'd like to know how many of them are capable of taking care of the children they bear without "assistance". I don't think you need to be married to have children, but you certainly need to be able to care for them andprovide for them on your own if you make that choice to do it alone.

    Yes, yes you are. It's clear that one of these groups is doing something entirely wrong. Actually, they all are but one is far, far worse than the others and people don't want to acknowledge that simple and demonstrable fact.

    I've seen what I assume are white people on here calling blacks who oppose the Liberal and/or Democratic ideas as "Uncle Toms". It's disgusting.

    Need to shift your focus from drug users to drug sales. Virtually nobody of any race goes to prison just for using drugs.

    That would be against the Laws of Easy Liberal Votes.

    I agree, I don't think drug users ought to be in jail at all, they need to be in mandatory treatment programs. Drug dealers, on the other hand, ought to be put to death.

    I think a better question is; who's more capable of changing their own problems, someone else or themselves? Like an addict, you can't help a person that doesn't really want it.
